Rescued from the streets of Pedro Sula, Honduras, seventy orphaned girls have found refuge at Our Little Roses orphanage and affectionately call it home. In 2012, American poet Spencer Reece received a Fulbright grant to live there and teach poetry and English. The girls find their voices in poetry as they heal from profound trauma and change the course of their lives. The range of subjects are varied but return often to the nature of love and family, the pain of betrayal, and the mothers they lost or never had. When two of the girls graduate from the home, the film follows them into the frightening world outside of the thick steel gate. Discussion with director Brad Coley
